|Help. I have been all over YouTube for instructions on how this divide this flapjack.|
Its in for the winter and I am afraid it will become even bigger.
Do I uproot it and take babies off the side?
Can I cut the largest one in half?

|What a beauty. |
Are there two separate plants Jo Ann? If so you can separate them if you want to.
How big is the container they are in now?

|I think what looks like a second plant is a second growth from the main plant.|
That pot is about 10 inches in diameter.
This is how it started in May
It must be 4 times bigger now.

|Wow, it sure grew fast. They are suppose to be easy to root, but I don't know much about them. |
I see tarev has one. I would think she has quite a bit of knowledge to share on this plant. Maybe she can give you some advice?

|Thanks I'll track her down.|
I think the plantletts grow along the main stem and the second one in the pix is from the stem at the base.

|Would love to see photos after you divide it. Maybe you can share the information you get on what to do? Would be great to add it to the database also.|

|I havnt heard from tarev but I will pass whatever she says on to you.|
I told her if it was not necessary to do anything I would abide by that. I probably will hear tomorrow.

|Hey she replied to just leave the plant like it is.|
I asked if I could copy her advise and send to you for the database.She gave an excellent rundown and pix of the plant from season to season. Paddle Plant (Kalanchoe luciae subsp. luciae)
The plantletts are called pups. So funny.

I just posted Tarevs reply in comments on the database.
I hope it will help other northerners who want to grow these hot country plants.

|Way to go Jo Ann. Going to look.|
Sep 24, 2012 1:06 PM CST
|Oh yeaaa Its worth a look.|
Sep 24, 2012 1:08 PM CST
|I went and looked. |
Great information. I think you will need to go back and delete the photo links, as they don't show up in the Comment area. Maybe you can put a link to each photo? Does she have those photos in the database some where?
Sep 24, 2012 2:00 PM CST
|I have no idea.Maybe you could ask her.I am not really skilled on computer.|
I will try to delete the images.
Sep 24, 2012 6:39 PM CST
|If she can give you database links to those photos, you can add the links instead of the photo itself.|

|I'm all ears here. I have 3 flapjack plants (1 to share) and will want to know what to do with them when they start growing. (just like the other 55 succulents I have) Boy am I over my head. I'm now addicted to WalMart, that's where I got most of mine this Summer.|
Sep 28, 2012 12:31 PM CST
|Wow, Faye those are wonderful. Isn't Walmart a great place to find fun succulents. |
55 succulents. Good thing they don't need much baby sitting.
Sep 28, 2012 1:20 PM CST
|LOL you're right Lynn. Also good thing I have a sun room to carry them over winter. Would love to share with you, would you tell me some you don't have?|
Sep 28, 2012 3:52 PM CST
|Not sure right now Faye. I need to do an inventory of what tender succulents I have. Some I need to bring indoors for winter. Not sure how much room I will have once I get them moved. |
Wow, I love the color you painted the walls.
I am going to have Dave move this thread into the Cactus and Tender Succulent Forum so others interested in this type of plants can read this thread. It is full of great information.
Jo Ann I added the link to your above post, the one talking about information tarev gave you.
